Muhammad, the founder of Islam, was no prophet of God! He was an illiterate warlord, a mass murderer, a thief, an extortionist, an adulterer, a polygamist, a slave owner and slave trader, and a pedophile! Mohammad married Aisha when she was just 6 years old and consummated the marriage when she was just 9 years old! Muslims and Christians do not worship the same God! Muslims don't believe that Jesus is the son of God. "Allah has no son". They reject the Trinity.

  Martyrdom is no stranger to the Church. During the 1st century at the birth of the Church, and on through the next nearly 3 centuries the Christian community of believers was persecuted and martyred by the Roman government. Their martyrdom was the life blood of the Church. For all the persecution, the Church only grew. Today Christians are the most persecuted religious group in the world. Then with the advent and rise of Islam in the late 7th century we saw a high number of Christian martyrs as Islam spread by the sword, conquering one Christian nation after another in the Middle East. The Middle East was for at least 6 centuries Christian.  In modern times, during the 20th century we saw widespread martyrdom happen associated with the 2 World Wars, and the rule of the Communists in Russia and China. Tens of millions of Christians were martyred. The 20th century began with the genocide of the Armenian Christians beginning on April 24, 1915 and continuing in the years after World War
